The Academy is a Canadian television series about microcomputers and the companion to Bits and Bytes;
while these two series cover the same topics, The Academy explores the key concepts in greater detail.
It was produced by TVOntario in 1983, stars Jack Livesley and Jim Butterfield, and includes interviews
and panel discussions with many more people.

The series consisted of 12 episodes and featured many of the classic 80s microcomputers including the
Apple ][, Commodore PET, VIC 20 and 64, Atari 800, TRS-80, TI 99 and the IBM PC.

The subjects were:

Episode 1 - Getting Started
Episode 2 - Ready Made Programs
Episode 3 - How Programs Work
Episode 4 - File and Data Management
Episode 5 - Communication between Computers
Episode 6 - Computer Languages
Episode 7 - Computer-Assisted Instruction
Episode 8 - Simulations and Games
Episode 9 - Computer Graphics
Episode 10 - Computer Music
Episode 11 - Computers at Work
Episode 12 - What Next

Note: The audio quality of the clips is poor at times due to the conditon of the original VHS tapes on
